Firefox 93.0 64bit Linux Mint 1.0

When I close (X) the window, my session is not restored. I have checked all the settings and verified that they are set correctly. Then, I found that when I tried to quit the program via File menu, it says that I have two windows and three tabs open, yet I only have on window/one tab open. I can not find this other window... What does this mean? Have tried refreshing the app, safe mode, and disabling the extensions that I use.

Thanks!

Just trying to convert to Linux from windows (cinnamon 20.2) using the same display (3840 x 2160) Firefox on Linux scrollbars are a lot narrower than on windows and menu bar icons are too small. I cannot find any settings to enlarge these on Firefox on linux.

I estimate that the windows scroll bar is 300% wider than in Linux (Using screen ruler Linux scroll bars are 6 pixels and bitwarden icon is 12 pixels)

The usability of Firefox is questionable for me like this so I really hope there is a setting to make using Firefox a comfortable experience ( I have default font set to 20 and default zoom to 150% )

I am running "Firefox Browser 93.0", and I have Windows 10 Pro Version 21H1, OS Build 19043.1288. I am unable to watch certain video's, as an example, the video in this link: [https://www.wandtv.com/news/illinois-.../article_24b92a86-32c4-11ec-a487-3bb3f17fa133.html] won't play. It use to work, but something has changed, not by me. It will play that same video using the "Edge Browser" so there is nothing wrong with the website. However, I can play this "YouTube Video": [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAJSYk5wMiA] I also tried another link in their website, this is the weather link: [https://www.wandtv.com/weather] it starts to play, but then stops and nothing ever plays. Here is another link I tried on their website: [https://www.wandtv.com/sports/fans-ma.../article_f94f4ade-32e0-11ec-9351-ef71f52b96cd.html] It won't play either. But they all play in the "Edge Browser!" Any ideas on what changed and how do I change it back, so they will play? I prefer Firefox Browser to any other browser! Do you know what the issue could be? I appreciate your time! NiceSeeingYou

I recently came across a website listing adjustments to Firefox's about:config settings. These are supposedly done to help make the browser more secure. Modifications to browser.safebrowsing.phishing.enabled,and after, are what I'm most curious about - mostly since the name Google is attached.

Others: - dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled [copy and paste tracking] - network.http.sendRefererHeader [hyperlink tracking]

Website for reference: https://proprivacy.com/privacy-service/guides/firefox-privacy-security-guide

I understand a lot can change within a year, but before breaking something, I wanted to ask if changing any of the above settings, particularly those having to do with Google, will cause damage to the browser itself. -thx

I had to do a computer reset on my laptop back to factory settings, everything ok now except one annoying issue I cannot seem to resolve. Some websites I was using perfectly ok in Firefox before now show as tiny text/font size and or generally looks wrong (in firefox) and nothing I do seems to resolve the issue, for example I'm viewing some websites at 130% but some text on the page is still too small. I can view the same sites in chrome with no issues at all at normal 100% level, The best example I could give I can't paste here for obvious reasons, my hargreaves lansdown pension values text is all squashed together so individual text that shows on one line on chrome (correctly) shows as condensed into 2 lines in firefox, the text is big but the values beside it are not for example, any increase in the zoom level doesnt really resolve this issue, yes the text gets bigger but I shouldnt have to read it at 150% zoom !!! but 100% is waaay too small, and the values size is not in sync withe the text beside it. I count myself as fairly savvy technically, I've tried all sorts including clearing cache and cookies and checking settings etc in firefox but this one has me stumped, some sites work ok but it looks like Firefox may be struggling to cope with some sort of display extension that some sites are using to display some parts of their page Any ideas please ? Thanks

I'm trying to find a way to change where Firefox 93 stores my temporary internet files away from C Drive to a different drive to reduce lag. I found an article on how to do it using the about:config utility, but I can't do what that article describes — right-clicking in the about:config browser does not give me the option to create a new string; there is no "new" option.

How do I change this in Firefox 93?

When deleting Firefox' history I can choose to clear "active logins" and/or "cookies". But "cookies" are mostly used to store information about "active logins". So there seems to be some overlap. I'm interested in the technical difference between the two. I suspect "active logins" is clearing only session cookies, while "cookie" is clearing also/only non-session cookies? But I haven't been able to find reliable documentation on these details. Could someone help me out?

When I do a search in the Sidebar, the bookmarks always appear to be in same order as they are in the main menu with the newest at the bottom of the list.

However I just added 4 new ones & 3 are at the bottom but 1 is at the top in the Sidebar. Yet all are at the bottom in the main menu. I’d like to keep all 4 grouped together but cannot drag any of them into place.

I deleted & re-saved the bookmarks. When saving, the first one added appears at the top of the Sidebar search list & the other 3 at the bottom.

Somewhere along the way, when I edited a couple of the names the top one swapped places with one of the bottom 3 in the Sidebar. Yet they’re all in their original order at the bottom of the main menu.

Any idea why the Sidebar is changing the order?

My issue is that I like to help researchers by filling/doing their online quiz/forms/etc. They usually use this site for reflex test: https://pavlovia.org/ My problem is that you need to strike a key. Whenever I do that the f3 research box appears ... It's fun when you need to close it for a reflex test where seconds do matter. Is there a way to disable it ?
